Altered wood block home decor piece

Hello everybody, we have had a little summer break from the regular STAMPlorations posts and they will be returning very soon, but it is not quite time for that yet. Therefore, today I´d like to share a „just for fun“ STAMPlorations tutorial with you.

I´ve created a home decor piece out of a wood block my dear husband cut for me into a shape of a house. I wanted to use motivational stamp sentiments as a focal point on this piece and built the layers and decoration around it. Here is what I did:

I also created a fast forward video with all the steps until to the finished block for you to watch. Hope you enjoy and get inspired to play a little with your stamps, stencils and media! Remember, there is no right or wrong, no right colors or wrong colors – just use what you have and like! Remember to have fun :).

Just in case you are interested on some products I´ve used on this project, I´ll add the LinkDeli links which will directly take you to each product (some products may not be available anymore, as they are from my older stash, but I will replace those with similar ones).

As always, if you would like to purchase any of the STAMPlorations products used on this project, feel free to grab my personal 20% off discount code (STAMPGIRLSANNA) and use it upon checkout at their store. It is valid for both regular prized as well as reduced product!

Happy creating & let´s stay creative!

Stay warm

Hello there everyone, today I´m just quickly dropping by to share a wintery card with you. I did my first ever mirror image stamping on this card, using the Misti-tool (there are plenty of videos on YouTube how to do this technique). The stamping part actually was not that hard to create – the coloring is the part I am not very talented at…LOL…

But since these birdies are SUPPOSED to look like they are freezing, I actually can live with the end result. Inside is a funny „stay warm“ stamped sentiment. I think it fits the card theme perfectly.

Sometimes it feels good to do something different – even though the end result is FAR away from the result I aimed for. Oh well, it was still fun :). Want to see how I create my mirror images with the Misti? Here goes:

Happy scrapping,
